Wee Hunk's rating of the film Bob le flambeur

It's hard not to be jealous of the French. They don't have the same constraints the American gangster films do. They can deal with mature themes and don't have to be morally righteous in the end. American films of this era are about simple black and white morality. The French treat you like an adult, where there's a lot more grey.
